    I am new to saltwater fishing, and I need all the help that I can get please?!?! I have been fresh water fishing all of my life and have that down pretty good, but saltwater eludes me. I have asked all of the tackle shops that I have purchased lures and rigs from, and they have helped a lot.

    I don't have my boat up and working so I am typicall fishing from piers and from the bank. I normally fish in Matlacha or in Cape Coral. I have caught a TON of channel catfish, but would rather catch something that is a lot more fun and not such a pain to take off the hook. smile

    Any help you can provide me would be AWESOME!!

    Thanks in Advance!

    -Amanda

    A good fish to target in the beginning would be redfish. They are easy to catch, and if you manage to catch one in the slot (18-27 inches) very good to eat. You can target redfish with many of the same soft-plastic lures you used for bass in freshwater. Good live baits are pinfish, mullet, menhaden, greenies, and shrimp. The best setup for redfish is either to free line a bait (no bobber or weight) or use a slip-lead setup. Slip lead setups are just over-sized carolina rigs, witht the egg sinker above the swivel. Match your hooksize to the bait you are using.

    I would give you more advice, but you'd have to let me know what kind of fish you want to catch so I can give you targeted advice.
